Some would say that Volunteers are the backbone of our society, but many organisations are strugglinb to find enough willing volunteers to function effectively. The demands of modern society to work and family has drastically reduced the amount of time given to volunteer organisations over the years. Those that do give their time are generally not the ones to seek any form of recognition, but at least from time to time the general public does get to see a snippet of what Volunteerism is about.
COmVOiceS is calling on all New Zealanders to show their support for volunteers at International Volunteer Day events in their region. To find out more, contact your local Volunteer Centre or Volunteering New Zealand, or visit www.volunteeringnz.org.nz.
